CU Denver faculty lead and teach a wide range of global study programs world wide. Students have the extraordinary opportunity to engage with the location and their professor. Programs are designed with CU Denver’s busy student body in mind: Costs are reasonable on these short-term programs.

Take a look at the feature profile of the CU Denver Maymester experience by Vicki Hildner with University Communications.
Positive, convivial, intense, gratifying, experiential, passionate, life-altering—these are just some of the words that faculty and students use to describe their experiences in a Maymester class.
Ireland in Context
This Maymester course explores a variety of student-centered honors and leadership research topics (i.e., culture, politics, and history) focused on larger group/peer research themes (i.e., education, medicine and the health care system, and sectarian politics).
Course work is comprised of significant student-centered learning activities and includes reading and cybersleuthing activities, group discussions, reflective writing and daily Weebly blog posts (Blog as Journal project), listening and video-viewing, site-specific explorations, cultural activities, guest lectures and mentoring sessions, and full planning for and participation in the Fall 2014 – “Celebration of Excellence” Honors Symposium presentation – a miniconference and final presentation project to report research, tell stories, share photos and experiences, and promote our blog showcase launch and highlight the UHL program.
The Ireland in Context (Maymester 2014) University Honors and Leadership Program course is an intense, transformative, life-changing 3-week learning opportunity that we will experience together in context — through travel, cultural ambassadorship, pub culture, food, art, music, history, politics, medicine, language, films, plays, and building deep connections with people, places and ideas — across Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Take a look at the Program Brochure and I hope to study and learn with you in Ireland this summer!
